Head further into the backcountry with Canada’s intermediate-level recreational Avalanche Safety Training 2
Combining classroom and field sessions, participants should expect to be fully involved in the day to day decision making on this course, with the support and feedback of your guides. Our curriculum is based on nationally standardized material from the Avalanche Canada.
We take it a step further and specifically focus on delivering a program to our students that is relevant to the current trends in free-skiing, split-boarding and technical alpine and ice climbing in avalanche terrain.
Field Days will have a heavy focus on getting students into the lead and making decisions on the move. Your guides will introduce a variety of new snow stability tests, as well as a more advanced set of snowpack analysis skills and their application, not previously introduced on the AST 1 course.
